We’re big fans of the outdoor life and we know that you are too. As providers of insurance for motorhomes and caravans for more than 20 years, we’ve heard time and again how much you enjoy spending your holidays with family and friends at a variety of locations across the continent.
We love hearing your stories and that’s part of the reason we created our Campsite Finder tool. We wanted to spread the word about the amazing camping locations that we’ve experienced ourselves or heard about from the experts – you.
In the spirit of sharing, we’ve recently been asking you to tell us your favourite #CampingMemories with the added incentive of a fantastic prize for the story that we enjoyed the most.
The prize included:
- A 7-night camping stay for a family of four at one of six fantastic Park Holidays UK campsite locations along the South Coast.
- Annual subscription to Camping or Practical Caravan magazine courtesy of magazine.co.uk
- £200 Ultimate Gift Card so the winner could stock up on camping essentials.
You shared some brilliant stories and we loved reading about the fun you’ve had creating camping memories. Here are some of our favourites…
Unsurprisingly, the Great British weather played a big part in your camping memories:
It’s good to know that no matter how bad the weather gets, nothing can stop us Brits from enjoying ourselves!
Your love of spending time amongst nature was also a common theme, with many of you sharing great pictures of places you’ve stayed at.
From wonderful sunsets…
...to perfect locations for eating al fresco:
We also heard about the creative ways you choose to spend your time whilst camping. It just goes to show that there is no substitute for some fresh air and a little imagination:
@staveley_head it's the second one we've done - hard work but yes, fun, and worth it!— Tent Sniffer (@TentSniffer) August 19, 2015
From your comments, we also learnt that when spending time in the great outdoors, it’s essential to keep in mind that you’re sharing space with the local wildlife:
Unfortunately, as much as we loved ALL of your #CampingMemories, there could only be one winner.
Whilst it wasn’t an easy choice, we felt that the imagination showed by Jo Thomas and her family to make the most of a misty night and a full moon was a great example of making camping memories.
Congratulations, Jo! We hope you have an amazing holiday and that you create even more magical memories during your stay with Park Holidays UK.
We’ve loved hearing about all your favourite camping memories and would be delighted if you would keep sharing your experiences with us. Just head over to our Facebook or Twitter pages and join in the conversation.
